He may create clean code, but he sure has one messy desk

If you’ve ever found yourself wondering what sort of workspace environment the creator of Linux works from, it’s your lucky day.

As part of an ongoing video series from The Linux Foundation you can now nosey at the desk and work ethic of Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux. In the short 4 minute clip you’ll learn what he keeps on his desk, what he gets up to between kernel releases and witness him use a contraption called the ‘zombie shuffling desk‘.

The entry is part of an online initiative titled ’30 Linux Kernel Developer Workspaces in 30 Weeks’ designed to help connect developers with the wider community of Linux users, hackers and enthusiasts.

Is your workspace messier than Linus’? Do you also work at a standing desk? Let us know in the comments below.
